As evidenced by its long-standing association with such giants of jazz guitar as George Benson, Pat Metheny, and John Scofield, Ibanez has been a constant pioneer in the world of hollow-body guitar building for more than three decades. Part of that legacy is owed to the Artcore collection, which has succeeded in smashing any and all preconceptions in its wake as to what a great hollow or semi-hollow ought to be. The Artcore formula builds on equal parts luthiery know-how, daring design, and a passion for warm, full-bodied tone.
The AS73 features a select-grade Maple semi-hollow body, a set-in Mahogany neck and Rosewood fretboard contribute to the warm-sounding characteristics of the AS73. Ibanez designed the Classic Elite pickups to give you big, full tone and well-balanced output. Case sold separately.

Mine did not have the pickguard. I bought two, and passed the red one on at a great price. Now kicking myself. Gave the Amber one to my son, now I have none. But my son deserved this great guitar at one tenth the price of a Gibby ES 335. I would give Ibanez a 90 percent capture of the essence of a 335. Applause
